Gary Community School Corporation

Special Populations Department

One in six Gary Community School Corporation students has a disability. To help every child succeed, our Special Populations Department focuses on academic outcomes, aspirations for our students and regulatory compliance. Today, we are providing our students with more stability and continuity, new opportunities for inclusion and higher-quality programs that are aligned with district efforts to help all our students reach a high standard. Gary Community School Corporation provides a continuum of services for students with disabilities, age 2 to 21 inclusive, who are found eligible to receive special education services. Special education services are provided in the least restrictive environment in the neighborhood school to the maximum extent appropriate for children with disabilities so they may be educated with children who are not disabled. City-wide special education services are provided in specific situations when the nature or severity of the disability is such that education in general education classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
